Cup and Saucer Vine
Conjuring an Alice in Wonderland adventure, this
impressive fast growing climber sprouts deep green pinnate
leaflets, tendrils galore and an eye-catching bonanza
of inky purple-colored Campanula-like bells with a musky scent, shapely stamens and ruffled
green bracts. The tender hummingbirdfriendly
Cup and Saucer Vine hails
from Mexico and tropical South
America, so it naturally works best
as a quick-cover annual or container
specimen in cold climates
and a stand-alone evergreen in
warmer ones. Wondrous even to
Charles Darwin, who included
it in his 1875 book about
climbing plants, Cobaea scandens'
floriferous display relishes
moist free draining soil and
still entrances garden visitors
today. Large band.
Size: 10' 0"–20' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 9.
Cobaea scandens (T-0280)
